Her background in science at the University of Texas inspired her to create the Apologia elementary science courses.

We love the swimming creature book and highly recommend.

We did most of the labs and activities suggested, which really helped make the lessons more memorable.
Mom's Home
It's not dumbed down but also easy to read and well-illustrated.

Using this book to teach science has brought joy to our home school. When I wake up on the mornings that we have Science class I am so excited. I can hardly wait to get the school day started so we can learn more about the world God created.

My degree is in Communication and I teach Literature to High School students. My weakness is Science. Never before have I learned so much about the field. I am no longer intimidated by Science.

This book is well written. It is organized in such a way that it flows as you read it. The conversational style lends it self easily to discussions with the children. When we leave a chapter we have real understanding of the subject covered, not just more knowledge. This I think is a mark of a good author and a book that leads a student to a well-educated mind.

The illustrations are beautiful and serve as excellent markers for the children as we go back to previous chapters reviewing the information to increase long term comprehension. They also hold the attention of younger students while you read and discuss more complicated ideas with the older students.

In my opinion this book could be successfully used to teach a kindergarten student as well as a 7th or 8th grader, requiring less and more homework from the respective students. If I did not home school my children I would still want it in my library. Not only has it taught my children, it teaches me.

The CD of notebook pages is an excellent resource. After the student has read and understood the concepts taught he can use the notebook pages to express his comprehension. These pages serve at least two purposes.

This book was just wonderful. I had kids who were begging for this to be taught and were excited the whole time. They could not wait to produce papers for presentations on their favorite sea creature. They would come to class ready to participate and would want to know more. I was again very impressed with the authors way of showing God's creation in our world. The idea of trying to explain that we are complex creatures created by God's design and not something that evolved by accident could be seen using this curriculum and not some biased evolutionary text book.

This book, along with the other Exploring Creation books by Fulbright, is amazing! Our fourth grader has learned so much and is anxious to learn more since he has used this book. We did most of the labs and activities suggested, which really helped make the lessons more memorable. Our seventh grader wishes that she could have done this book. In fact, she wants to do it just for fun this summer! We also did a lapbook from KnowledgeBox which corresponds to this book. I would recommend this series to any elementary homeschool family.

Swimming Creatures brought to life a part of the world that awe inspiring. Students are taught how to correctly identify and classify creatures. Just the other day my 9yo was discussing sharks with my 6yo and explaining why sharks are always swimming.

My kids, then 10-12yrs have both enjoyed reading this series. They are really written well for kids and don't feel like a dry textbook. I give them only 4 stars though because too many of the projects are arts & crafts and if they're real science experiments they don't work. Teaming up with another science teacher that's stronger in developing experiments would be earn it the 5th star.

As a homeschool mom with a passion for science, I have spent way too much money on science curriculum over the years, most of which has been boring and virtually useless. This book was the shining exception, and we're now working through the whole series with my son. I wish it had been out when my older children were in the elementary range.
VERY DETAILED - more so than most younger elementary children will be likely to remember, but also VERY READABLE, so they will stay engaged and remember more than might be expected for their ages. This would be very useful for teaching multiple children at different ages - younger ones will stay interested, while older ones will have their needs for more information satisfied as well.
Written from a creationist viewpoint, and strongly supports this view with helpful and informative tidbits throughout.

I have been homeschooling for 4 years now. Our first year it was quite a hassle to get my girls to want to do science. I find science quite interesting myself although I did not in school. I found this series and it has rocked my world. My girls LOVE science! They are asking if we can start our days with Science. They have even asked to do another Science lesson when all of our school work is done for the day. We recently finished the Swimming Creatures book. We went to SeaWorld with my brother's family (who don't homeschool) and my girls kept saying "We learned about this in Science" or "we studied that this year" or "Mom remember when we read about..." Even my brother didn't know that Narwhal really existed. He was surprised that we had learned about them and was shocked that their horn is really a tooth coming from their mouth. It was pretty apparent to me that my niece who is the same age as my daughters but goes to public school was not getting the education that my daughters are and is not excited about Science.
What Christian parent doesn't appreciate a Science book that points to God as the Creator? This series shows what an Artist God is and how imaginative He is. They show how he has made animals just for each other. As a Christian adult I look and learn in these books the same as my daughters however I picture my Heavenly Father laughing in delight when we are learning about another one of his fantastic creations. When he sees the joy and awe of my daughters learning more about Him I know it really pleases Him. When I am learning I just got to say "Way to go Father! Your creation is so cool!"
Folks here is what I know. My daughters love Science because of these books and they want to start on the Land Animals of the Sixth Day during the summer.
